    Honestly, other than during the last two Olympics when they somehow find magic and play amazing, they never look impressive. They sit back way too much and try to counter attack. They need to turn Fleming and Huitema loose and let them develop and attacking game.
    Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

    And Andreescu takes it over Serena to win the US Open!!

    First Canadian ever to win a singles Grand Slam event! We're going to be hearing her name for a decade or more.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I watch very little tennis but that was very, very, cool.

That's all we gotta do. This right here makes us stronger. Let's understand who we are as a team. Let's understand this right here makes us stronger." - Ray Lewis, January, 2012.

    Definitely a “you remember where you were when” moment. Just amazing. So proud to be a fan of hers. What a great ambassador of the sport.

    Sometimes, there is more to sport than just winning.

    Legends. One of the greatest dance pairs the world has ever seen. They done Canada proud. Thank you Tessa & Scott. Enjoy the tour and retirement.

    Spare a thought today for Mikayla Martin, an up and coming member of the Canadian ski cross team who died in a mountain biking accident yesterday in my home town. Only 22 years old.

    We know the family a little, and Mikayla was very well known to all of us in Squamish since she was a kid. It's an incredible shock to us all.

    Not sure that is a guarantee. I think Bobsleigh Canada was just ready to move on from that hot mess.
